    SUMMARY: Doing all he can to keep his team in playoff contention, Tennessee’s rookie quarterback threw two touchdown passes and rushed for another to engineer his fourth comeback in the fourth quarter or overtime in a 30-29 win at Buffalo. The win lifts Tennessee to 8-7 after beginning the season 0-5. Young, who is now 8-4 (.667) in 12 career starts, helped the Titans overcome a 29-20 deficit in the final 12 minutes. The rookie connected with receiver Brandon Jones for a 29-yard touchdown pass with 11:05 to play and then engineered a 14-play, 75-yard drive which resulted in a field goal with 2:10 left for the one-point lead and eventual victory. However, Young's most electrifying play came at the end of the first half, when he scored on a 36-yard keeper on a fourth-and-2. The No. 3 overall pick in last April’s draft completed 13 of 20 passes for 183 yards with two TD passes without an interception for a glittering season-high 127.7 passer rating. Tennessee converted four of five third-down conversion tries in the fourth quarter. Two were Young scrambles and the other two came on the accuracy of his right arm. In his rookie year from Texas, this is the first Player of the Week Award for Young.

    i mean i dont think he wants to be wrong and keeps denying it but he is. espn should fire him. but the QB he loves so much is phillip rivers which is kinda ironic since it makes rivers look so much better with LT and there defense. also hoge looked stupid after saying it was a phase when rivers went 10-30 in the seahawks game

    I believe 8-22/23 is worse than 10-30.

    It's not.

    10/30 is a 32% completion percentage.

    8/22 is 36%
